All Unhealthy Days is a composite measure of Physically Unhealthy Days and Mentally Unhealthy Days. For each adult, the number of Physical Unhealthy Days reported in the last 30 days is added to the number of Mentally Unhealthy Days reported in the last 30 days. These numbers are then averaged across all individuals in each state. However, the composite measure is censored at 30 days. For example, if an adult reported 17 Mentally Unhealthy Days and 20 Physically Unhealthy days, this individual would be assigned the maximum of 30 All Unhealthy Days. Consequently, the sum of the average number of Mentally Unhealthy Days and the average number of Physically Unhealthy Days will always be lower than the average of All Unhealthy Days.

for exact question wording. National estimates represent the total population rate of adults who reported this measure. The margin of error (MOE) represents the uncertainty of an estimate due to sampling variability; the calculated MOE is 95%. N/A indicates that data were not available or suppressed because the number of sample cases was too small. New Jersey data are not available in 2019 because the state was unable to collect sufficient data, and 2019 national data do not include New Jersey. Florida data are not available in 2021 because the state was unable to collect sufficient data, and 2021 national data do not include Florida.
